Attentive Antivirus Removal Guide

What is Attentive Antivirus?

Attentive Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware, which belongs to an old group of viruses, which is known as WinWebSec. Once it attacks the PC, it starts reporting about invented viruses. By doing that, it seeks to scare its victims and push them into purchasing licensed version. Be sure that such version doesn’t exist and if you were told by this program that your computer is infected and that you need to get the ‘licensed’ Attentive Antivirus version in order to fix it, you have to ignore this offer because you will lose your money. Typically, this rogue anti-spyware gets inside the system without any permission asked. It infects computers through security holes that appear when users forget updating anti-virus and anti-spyware or simply doesn’t have it. Please, stay away from Attentive Antivirus. If you have already purchased this rogue, you have to contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Finally, remove Attentive Antivirus without any delay.


Attentive Antivirus applies the same distribution methods as its predecessors. Typically, it relies on trojan horse, which hides inside illegal websites and spam. In addition, you should stay away from e-mails that come from unknown sources to keep your PC protected. Once it gets inside the system, this trojan horse downloads infected files and modifies it in order to make this malware active as soon as PC is rebooted. Once it becomes active, it starts showing continuous pop-up ads and notifications that claim:

How to prevent from getting rogue antispyware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
